Veraison underway in Lake Chelan AVA

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Please note, posts may be less frequent between now and Labor Day.

Today, a few pictures from Monday from the always scenic Lake Chelan AVA. Veraison is underway in many locations, although not yet in others or for particular grapes, such as Cabernet Franc. Most people I spoke with reported being two weeks or more behind schedule. By comparison, many other regions in the state estimate being ten days behind their historical schedules.
